Sheep by a Quiet Old Farm Painting

Just a Little Ways from Home

I have had an idea for a new sheep painting floating around in my head for a couple of months now.  This is the newly finished painting from that idea.  I painted this quiet sheep into an overcast farm scene from my imagination.  I really like painting a variety of atmosphere in my country landscapes, from blue skies filled with puffy white clouds, to overcast and misty scenes, to stormy and night time skies.  I am currently working on a starry night landscape with a horse in a silent farm painting. 

The sides of the gallery wrapped canvas are painted to match, and it is wired to hang, so no framing is necessary!

Across the Quiet Pasture

Close up views of the painting.

This large original painting is done by myself, Sharon France.  My inspiration for this painting came from the horses that I found in a rural pasture a couple of years ago.  I painted them into a  quiet country scene from my imagination.  This piece measures  18" x 14" x .75 and is done in acrylic on stretched canvas.  The sides of this gallery wrap canvas are painted to match and it is wired to hang, so that no framing is necessary.

Red Barn in a Country Landscape

The Old Red Barn


Close up view of the painting.

I especially like to find an old barn with a cupola on top of it.  This one is from my imagination and was inspired by an old barn on the backroad, that we occasionally take to another town.  I decided on a traditional white farmhouse to paint into the farm scene with it, with a suggestion on distant farms on the horizon.

Modern Farm Paintings

Old Farm Under a Pink Sky
5 x 7" on archival hardboard panel.   

I am in the midst of working on a series of little country landscape paintings right now.  These study paintings are from memories and thoughts that I have of old country farmsteads.  I use them to work out ideas to possibly use for my larger canvas paintings. 

I have loved the country as far back as I can remember.   I look forward to painting and the peace that I find in it.  I hope that you may find that in viewing my original art work also. 

This painting has already been sold.

Near the Quiet Stream

It s been a while since I have painted one of my overcast stream paintings. I really enjoy painting different types of weather in my landscapes. This scene makes me think of one of those still quiet days in the country, where you can hear the sounds from a very long ways away.

Red Barn on a Quiet Farm Landscape Painting

Red Barn on an Old Farm

This painting was inspired by the old red barns and white farmhouses that were once so common along the country backroads, that I love.  There is something so peaceful and pleasant about being out in the country on a quiet summers day!  I hope to capture that in my paintings of summer time in the beautiful American Heartland.
